Greetings from your Alaska Covid Alliance team! We wanted to start a regular column to keep you informed on current issues. This first one will cover vaccines in children as that appears to be the newest, hottest topic.

FDA has approved emergency use of both Moderna and Pfizer “vaccines” for children from six-months-old to five years. CDC has also given the green light to immediately start “vaccinating” these vulnerable children. The Pfizer mRNA requires three shots and Moderna requires two.

In a Kaiser Family Foundation Survey conducted April 13-26, 2022, only 18% of parents with young kids said they would definitely have them vaccinated immediately, 38% plan to wait and see how it’s working, and 27% said they don’t intend to get their children vaccinated at all.

What is the risk of a COVID infection to very young children?

Of the 73 million children in the U.S., fewer than 700 have died of COVID-19 during the course of the pandemic, according to the CDC. But about 50,000 children under the age of 14 have died of all causes since the pandemic started.

The CDC estimates three out of four children already have had the infection. In the April 20, 2022, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), a study found the level of protection granted by a prior symptomatic COVID-19 infection among unvaccinated individuals was on par with the level of protection provided by mRNA vaccines. And natural immunity provided a longer window of protection than mRNA vaccines.

Some claim we must vaccinate kids to protect grandma and grandpa.

If the concern is our elderly population, all adults have had access to shots for quite some time. In fact, the CDC reports 98.5% of adults 65 and older have received at least a first vaccine dose, and 85.8% were fully vaccinated as of November 11, 2021.  

Regarding injuries from the “vaccines,” there have been 1.3 million injuries following vaccination in all age groups according to the government’s own database. The below chart outlines for you those effects:

EVENT              ½  TO 5 YEARS       AGES 5-11                 AGES 12-17
Adverse events:       1,739                    11,370                  32,203
Heart inflammation:       4                        22                          656
Blood clotting:              13                        44                         166
Deaths:                          3                         5                             44
Anaphylaxis:                 0                          0                             62

Data on children aged 6 months to five-years from December 14, 2020, to June 10, 2022, show 1,739 adverse events to include 65 cases rated serious and three reported deaths. Heart inflammation occurred in four, and blood clotting disorders in 13.

For 5-to 11-year-olds for the same time, 11,370 adverse events including 294 rated serious and five reported deaths. There were 22 cases of heart inflammation and 44 reports of blood clotting disorders.

For ages 12 through 17, 32,203 adverse events including 1,834 rated serious and 44 deaths. There were 62 cases of anaphylaxis (serious allergic reaction to a drug) where the reaction was life-threatening, requiring treatment or resulting in death. About 97% of those cases were with Pfizer. There were 656 reports of heart inflammation with 644 of these seen in Pfizer patients. And there were 166 reports of blood clotting disorders.

In another very interesting development, in response to a Freedom of Information Request submitted by the Children’s Health Defense, the CDC last week admitted it never analyzed the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System for safety signals for COVID-19 vaccines!

As a parent, you need to decide what is best for your child. We hope the above information will help you in that decision. Please share with others.

Bottom line: Very young children are very seldom seriously impacted by Covid-19. The vaccine side effects can be serious. It’s your call.

    This article give false information on the adults over 65. At this point with all the information that has come out WHY would anyone jeopardizes their child’s life in forcing them to get an experimental drug that doesn’t do anything for you? It also has said the next virus this drug will have no effect on. SO WHY waste your time gambling with your child’s life? I hope all parents of young children really think hard on this. This is my opinion only! Thank you.

  • S. Gibson says:

    Why would you give your infants and young children an experimental medical device that has not done what it said it will do and as time goes by more and more negative consequences are discovered? You would have to be a poor parent indeed to give your kid the jab.

  • Andy says:

    Remember folks, it’s safe and effective, this is why the southern border has been left wide open, J6 was real and why Maxwells clients are not imprisoned. Trust the system!

  • CD says:

    Just do research on the other vaccinations that have been fully “tested.” Scary! Start by looking up Dr. Andy Wakefield. I know the vaccination agenda does do damage just because of the harm they have brought on my own family. I was also lied to about the birth control pill. I was never told it could cause an abortion much less the health problems it ended up giving me.

    If you were given a bag of skittles.. but were told one of those could cripple or kill you.
    Would you eat the bag? Or just one piece?
    My guess is most would throw the bag away entirely…
    So why are we giving bags of poisoned candy to children?
